Your Guide to Effective UTE Tray Organiser Solutions

If you own a UTE, you own a highly versatile and functional vehicle. UTEs are powerful and flexible. They will handle all the needs you might have. You can use them for everyday commuting, contracting needs, transporting goods, off-road activities, and almost everything you may think of.

However, when you buy the UTE, you rarely get a vehicle with more than a bed. To maximize its use, you will need to install additional parts. Organizing your tray in the rear part of your UTE is essential to get the most out of it.

In this blog post, we talk more about this. We will help you organize the rear tray and share some ideas on how to do it. We will also discuss why this is important and how to do it right. Follow up and learn more about the rear tray of your UTE and how to make it better.

Think about what you’ll use the tray for

The first thing to do is think about how you will use your vehicle and what you’ll most often transfer with it. Based on this, you will know how to organize your tray best. Of course, if you don’t know what will be perfect, we’re here to help.

In general, most people use their trays for transporting ordinary everyday items, and only some will specialize their UTEs for something more specific. Some will turn their UTEs into camping vehicles and design remote bedrooms, and others will use them for their pet transport and grooming business by installing dog crates in the back.

Of course, the ideas are endless and if you think about it, be sure there’s a solution. If you only need your tray for transporting tools and smaller items for your contracting business or everyday chores, then the organization should be done adequately.

Install items that will enhance functionality

Whatever your choice is, you should install adequate items with functionality in your mind. If you’re about to transfer bigger items, such as machines, you need a toolbox canopy with openings on the sides that allow easier management.

If the machines are too big, think about only small toolboxes on the sides that will let you store sensitive tools, but will provide lots of open space for everything else. In general, you can’t have everything, and you will need to think about what will work best for your needs. You should create a fully functional rear tray.

Mind your options

When you realize what you need to transfer and you know what will work best, you should think about the options you have. Aside from leaving the tray entirely open and intact, you can also add some features to help you with your needs.

Many people will cover the tray with a tonneau, but others will opt for toolboxes of various sizes. Some will love the idea of a canopy, and those who need a lot of space can also add a ladder and a roof rack. There are lots of UTE canopy accessories to choose from and personalize the area based on your wishes, too.

Hire someone to install the items

Many people will order the items through the mail and install them on their own as a DIY project. However, not everyone is experienced and skilled in this, and many of us lack the proper tools to do it. If you’re one of these people, it’s best to hire someone else to get the job done.

A professional will mount a toolbox in the rear tray flawlessly. Professionals will have the right tools and knowledge for the job, and after their work, you’ll know that nothing can go wrong. If you handle it but lack the right tools and experience, you can expect additional issues to appear later on, which is something you don’t want to happen.

Use the undertray area too

Use the undertray area to add additional storage to your vehicle. The undertray area is perfect for storing smaller items, such as the first aid kit, small handy tools, duct tape, and items you might need in an emergency. Instead of looking for them where everything else is, an undertray toolbox or a trundle drawer may be the right way to do it.

These also need to be installed, but if you’re not skilled in it, you should find someone who is. You don’t want to have the undertray items fall off mid-driving. If done right, they are an excellent place to store items, as it is protected with the tray above them.


Instead of using the original setting, you should opt for custom UTE trays. The ideas above will help you organize the area. Choose some of the items we mentioned, and ensure you use the tray with its maximum capacity. Aside from using it for daily activities, you can turn the UTE into a vehicle helping your business.
